    Wonseo-dong is defined as the “west end of the Changdeokgung Palace backyard,” where its alleyway links with the stone path located at the backyard of the palace, while the secluded, serene atmosphere preserves the ambiance of what once used to be. The alleyway is home to numerous cafes, clothing stores, and the like, placed among a series of hanoks, for visitors to take in the beauty of traditional housing structures. It is also commonly seen as a pathway, hidden within the Bukchon area, offering passers-by a chance to enjoy a leisurely cup of tea.
